Concussion Programme Now Available on Physioplus

Concussion can be thought of as a mild traumatic brain injury caused by biomechanical forces. 

Traumatic head injuries and concussions require rapid specialist assessments to give the injured person the best chance of recovery. Often the barriers to appropriate management is misdiagnosis, delayed presentation or not having the specialist knowledge or equipment required to perform an adequate assessment. Physioplus might not be able to help you with the equpiment side of things but knowledge? We’ve got you covered!

We have a brilliant brand new 6 course concussion programme ready for you on Physioplus which has been accredited in SA, AUS and the US. The course has been created by Megyn Robertson, a physiotherapist with a special interest in concussion. Megyn has taught and lectured on the topic of concussion for many years and we are excited that her expertise is now available on Physioplus.

What Will This Programme Cover?

The six courses which make up the programme are listed below. They are available to be completed individually but to make the most of the content we recommend completing them in order.

  1. Introduction to Concussion
  2. Vestibular Anatomy and Neurophysiology
  3. The Postural Control System
  4. Concussion Assessment
  5. Vestibular and Oculomotor Assessment
  6. Concussion Treatment


Concussion Programme

Concussion results in a constellation of physical, cognitive, visual, emotional, and sleep-related disturbances. In order for us to assess and treat concussion, we need to understand the mechanism of injury, and what happens to the brain at a macroscopic and microscopic level. We also need to understand the anatomy and function of the peripheral and central vestibular systems, and the different systems affecting postural control. This programme of courses addresses these needs and how they relate to the subjective and objective examination and the physiotherapy management of concussion.
